Current School Information

WHEA Staff and Governing Board have decided to start the school year with 100% Distance Learning for the First Quarter.

Starting Monday, August 17th through October 2nd ALL students will start distance learning. Other public schools are doing a face-to-face during the first week of school, however, WHEA will NOT be implementing this. 


With the recent DOE decision and rise of COVID-19 cases this is the best way to maintain the safety of our staff and students. Please check your emails for more updates and communication from Teachers.
